The National Centre for Writing celebrates and explores the artistic and social power of creative writing and literary translation.

Based at the historic Dragon Hall in the heart of Norwich, England’s first UNECSO City of Literature, their ongoing programme of physical and virtual events engages writers, literary translators, readers and communities. Projects range from major international partnerships to vibrant festivals such as the Norwich Crime Writing Festival and the City of Literature strand at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

The Centre’s innovative collaborations and projects support new voices and new stories, and respond to the rapidly changing world of writing. Here, writers at all levels can access workshops and mentoring both face-to-face and online.
